VLV January Week 5 Recap + Viewfinder

It's our last January sketch week for 2014 as February sneaks into our view. However, that's not stopping me from strolling through the Viva La Verve gallery and finding some stunning inspiration to get my Verve stamps inky (see the end of the post for something a little special).

Below the sketch you can stroll through the cards that I found in my Viewfinder and then have make some 'ME' time to finish up a project with any of our week sketches. Here's my card using this weeks sketch by Charmaine.

There have been so many stunning cards so far this month! Here's a little look at three I just adore!

The clean lines of this creative card by Kristie caught my eye when she added the red glitter element onto the tag for Week 4.

Hillary used a iconic Verve stamps for this feather fantastic Week 4 card. The soft colors really go well with the glitter panel.

There are some beautifully colored flowers on this Week 3 sketch card made by Elizabeth. She has my inky fingers excited to use this stamp set soon.

The pure Valentine sweetness from Donna's card will bring a big smile to someone when they see the color combination, sparkles and hearts adorning this Week 5  sketch.

A bit of sewing, distressing and coloring are what put this card over the top for a rotated on its side Week 5 sketch card by Cheryl.
